It’s been a busy, and stressful, fall season already. I started prepping for the big wholesale order of hats and cowls in August. In September, I was contacted by another local shop and asked to provide them with hats and cowls too. So in October, I took a wholesale order to the Himalayan Institute of Buffalo. I had a bit of a minor set back in early October, though with a quick hospital stay, I was able to make up ground after some antibiotics. I dropped off a tote full of cowls and hats to Thin Ice Gift Shop this week. Whohoo!! What does that mean…I can start designing!
You guys know I love making hats and cowls, but winter isn’t all year round, unless you live in Buffalo, NY! Joking, sort of. But really, when it comes to crochet you have to really work at having something more than just winter items to keep the business running. Which over the years, I’ve worked hard to try to have other things in in the shop. Here are a few of my items that don’t require snow to be falling to use…
So, in the spirit of I need to make more than just hats and cowls. I’ll be lunching four new items that are what i’m calling functional or practical crochet. They can be used all year round and have multiple uses. The first one is out to testers, and the second one is already made and the pattern is ready to go to testers! I can’t wait to share these with you. They’re perfect for teacher gifts this holiday season, and will fit perfectly in stockings! I’ll give you a sneak peek of what’s coming….
